Fans Drag Katy Perry For Sexual Misconduct After 'American Idol' Kiss

Close

It’s safe to say the American Idol hopeful who Katy Perry kissed didn’t like it. Now, fans have accused the singer, who is a first-time judge on the show, of sexual misconduct and even harassment.

That Awkward Moment

Ben Isaac Glaze is known as the contestant who has never been kissed until Perry changed that when they playfully kissed. Unfortunately for Glaze, he said he wasn’t really a fan of the big moment that went viral.

“I was a tad bit uncomfortable,” Glaze revealed. “I wanted to save it for my first relationship. I wanted it to be special.”

Interestingly enough, Glaze made it clear he did not think Perry was inappropriate. He said that one reason he was actually glad she did it was that he didn’t make it to the next step in the competition, but said still got to be on camera because of the kiss.

Perry has yet to respond to Glaze’s reaction to their special moment. This controversy just happened after a nun who had filed a lawsuit against Perry died in court.

Fans Say Ben Isaac Glaze Is A #MeToo Victim

Fans seemed to agree with Glaze about the kiss being "uncomfortable," but took things a step further as they accused Perry of sexual misconduct. Many tweeted that if the gender roles were switched, the moment wouldn’t have gotten as many laughs.

One compared it to sexual assault and came for other women who endorsed it.

One said it was clear when they watched the moment during the show that Glaze didn’t want to kiss Perry.

Another pointed out Glaze wasn’t the only male contestant Perry allegedly made feel uncomfortable.

One fan said they were uncomfortable just watching it all play out.

Another fan added that Perry never gave Glaze the choice if he actually wanted Perry to be his first kiss.

How It All Went Down

Glaze said in his interview that if Perry actually asked him if he wanted her to kiss him and be the first girl he ever pecked, he would have declined.

In the actual moment, Perry’s fellow judge Luke Bryan asked Glaze if he ever kissed a girl and liked it, playing off of Perry’s hit I Kissed a Girl that was released in 2008. Glaze said no because he had never been in a relationship before.

Perry summoned Glaze and when he got closer, Glaze asked Perry about a kiss on the cheek. After he pecked her cheek, Perry took it a step further and kissed him on the mouth.

A Kiss Is A Kiss?

Meanwhile, Glaze’s friends told him his kiss with Perry certainly does not count as a first kiss.

“It was lip contact versus a romantic situation with someone you care about,” his friends said. “That’s what a real first kiss is.”
